Marie-Christine has been playing the daily quiz show ‘Everyone wants to take their place’ since April and has notched up 193 wins and £169,000 in prize money
She broke a record held by fellow Frenchman Christian Quesada who notched up 192 wins on rival quiz show ‘Twelve strokes of noon’ between 2016 and 2017.
Because his show was on a private TV channel as opposed to a public one he amassed a much larger prize pot – £705,000 – but Marie, a mother of twins, said the cash is unimportant to her.

‘Initially, my goal was to have fun. Today, I am proud to show that a woman can be first because in society we are not always recognised at our fair value,’ she said.
Marie-Christine sealed the record-breaking win by scoring 18 points to rival Nathalie’s score of 14 points.
The record-holder said she is hoping to reach 200 wins, and plans to use her prize money to pay off her mortgage and pay for her children’s education
Asked what she will do when she is eliminated, she said: ‘I will resume my normal life and people may be happy to no longer see my face. But I’m not looking forward to it.’
Marine-Christine said she plans to use her winnings to pay off her mortgage and pay for her children’s education.
The game is watched by as many as 1.69 million French viewers.
Marie-Christine explained her success: ‘Since I was little, I read a lot. My father was an educated worker. Our house was full of books.’
The world record holder has studied literature, English and management.
